H2GO Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony for Aquifer-Sourced RO Plant.

10/12/2020 10:16:35 AM

On October 7th, 2020, Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2GO held a groundbreaking ceremony for their much-anticipated aquifer-sourced Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Treatment Plant. Recently, H2GO accepted a bond financing proposal from First Bank, received LGC approval, and awarded all necessary contracts to start construction.
Those in attendance included representatives from MB Kahn Construction Company, Carolina Civil Works, Carmichael Construction, The Wooten Company, local leaders, the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, H2GO staff, and current and former H2GO board members involved in the advancement of the project.

The ceremony commemorated a new beginning for the aquifer-sourced RO plant. The project started as a way for H2GO to better serve their customers by directly managing water rates and adding a secondary source of water to H2GO’s service area. However, with the revelation of GenX and other PFOAs and PFAs in 2017 the project spotlighted the need to eliminate H2GO’s dependence on the contaminated Cape Fear River.

“We are excited to begin construction of the aquifer-sourced RO plant,” said Bob Walker, H2GO’s Executive Director. “This project has been our focus over the last nine years. As water providers, it is our mission to protect our community and give them the best quality water at the lowest possible rates.”

Construction will begin in November and H2GO expects clean, contaminate free water to be delivered to all customers in about 15 months.  With the completion and operation of the new aquifer-sourced water supply and RO plant project, H2GO will deliver clean, contaminate free water with no water rate increase.
